Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Sleep study is a test in which the patient is required to sleep in the sleep lab while the doctors watch and monitor all his required vitals to find out of there is any thing wrong.
Its available at many major hospitals in bangalore. Just check around.
I cannot quote a price because we do not have idea of the price. 
Best regards.
